I love the weekend. It gives me time to clear my head and get some writing done! A big thanks to all of our visitors, the site has been growing weekly and I hope that you enjoy our postings as much as we enjoy posting them. In terms of entertainment, I gotta say that I’ve been digging the new fall TV season. Some good new shows mixed in with some old favorites make for a good viewing.

  • Geocities may be long dead, but for those with fond memories of the goofy looking websites of the 90s, we now have The Geocities-izer! This genus website allows you to view what any website would look like if it was made in the 90s Geocities heyday. Sooo cool.
  • I love and miss Lost. I just saw the AWESOME new short film/coda on the sixth season DVD and Blu-ray, and thankfully we have other cool Lost related stuff to fill the missing gap, including this very cool fan art. It features all of our favorite characters drawn in an animated series style.
  • I was a bit swamped with work this week and missed New DVD Tuesday, but we really didn’t miss much. The only thing of note was Ridley Scott’s take on Robin Hood, which they should have just called “Gladiator 2”.  Did you pick up anything new? I’ve been getting used to watching older flicks I missed via Netflix Instant Queue.
  • My favorite Lois Lane, Teri Hatcher, is on her way to Smallville for a guest spot! In it she shall take of the role of Lois’ mom. I can’t wait to see her return to the world of Superman.
  • Randy Orton is the new WWE champion? When did that happen? A big thanks to our wrestling columnist Lucian who has been keeping track of all the going ons in WWE (and a bit of TNA info mixed in). Are you an old fan of wrestling that has been out of the mix for a while (like I have), than you should follow his wrestling recaps to see if WWE is worth checking out these days.

I usually write about posters that I really like or that caught my eye and are very striking. I can’t say that for this new poster for Robin Hood

The Ridley Scott helmed action flick that stars Russell Crowe has done absolutely nothing to get me excited.  This poster (and the last one with Crowe shooting an arrow) have been very bland and boring. There is nothing that sets this aside from the dozen other Robin Hood adaptations (Men in Tights and Disney’s version are tied for my favorite). The original concept Scott talked about where Crowe was going to portray the Sheriff of Nottingham as the good guy, with an evil version of Robin Hood, seemed like a really cool and interesting idea. I have no idea how it got changed and watered down, but when that happened, I lost all interest I had in the project.
